The rooms are very well designed and everything works perfectly. It is just a small walk to market square and it is very close to the Viking dock. Breakfast is excellentnand everyone has a smile. The tram is really close, like 20 meters Mattress was a little too soft.

We booked a junior suite for our arrival from Tallinn. This hotel is conveniently located near the Viking Terminal. One week before, we were informed the plumbing works of the junior suites will not be ready and we have to move to a superior room for the price of a standard room. They would have reserved the hotel sauna privately for us because junior suites have a sauna. It is not the change of rooms why I give just four stars. It is because there were some issues in our superior room. The television was located behind the sofa. Not so convenient to watch television. The sofa had brown stains. There was no power outlet on the other side of the bed. There were no bathrobes. We have stayed two times in a standard room and they have been better. The superior room was not much

We didn’t realize this was previously a prison and converted into a hotel. There are 2 original cells still in the hotel that you can visit on the restaurant floor (basement). The first was last used in the 1800’s and the other, more recently in 2012. It was a prison used for white collar crime so no malicious energies found in the hotel. The rooms are clean, warm & well equipped. The staff are friendly & cannot do enough for you. Breakfast has the usual foods as well as the some traditional Finnish foods. We only stayed one night, and it was such a pleasure. Helsinki is tiny & the hotel is perfectly situated to be able to catch the tram (tram no 4 - areas AB), right outside the hotel. Or you are able to walk easily around the city. A beautiful place to stay.
